MRes - Fusion Fuel Cycle
Energy from nuclear fusion is the result of the fusion of light atoms such as the isotopes of hydrogen – deuterium (2H) and tritium (3H). The most favoured fusion reaction is the so-called D-T reaction which fuses 2H (D) and 3H (T) to produce 4He and a neutron (plus a staggering 17.6 MeV of kinetic energy). The D-D reaction fuses 2H and 2H atoms and releases 3.3/4.0 MeV, which although still remarkably high, is considerably less than the D-T reaction. We are very pleased to be able to offer an MRes studentship studying the fusion fuel-cycle.
Evectek MRes Studentships (paid, 1 year) - Available now
We are very pleased to be able to offer an MRes position in partnership with Evectek.
Evectek are a company developing technology to enable zero emission vehicles. This MRes provides a great chance to work with Evectek’s engineers and the materials group at Bangor University.
This studentship is being run through the KESS 2 scheme. This means that students will receive payment to perform a year’s research, culminating in the award of a Masters in Research degree. The research project will be carried out collaboratively with Evectek who see these masters as a good way of training the engineers and scientists they would like to employ in the near future.
